Journal Entry 1 by house-elfdobby from Derby, Derbyshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Blurb from the back:

It's January, 1946 and writer Juliet Ashton sits at her cluttered desk in London, struggling to find a subject for her next book. Out of the blue, she receives a letter from one Dawsey Adams who, as well as sharing her love of Charles Lamb, is a member of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, set up in secret during the German Occupation. It's not long before Juliet begins to hear from the other members and discovers that the society is every bit as extraordinary as its name. There's Isola, who sells love potions along with her vegetables; Eben, a fisherman with a passion for Shakespeare; Will, the creator of the famous potato peel pie; and Dawsey himself, a bashful farmer with a tender heart. As the letters fly back and forth, Juliet's curiousity turns into genuine affection, and the founding member of the society, who fell in love with a German officer and was sent away to concentration camp,leaving her only child behind.

Fabulous book, a really great read. Bought another copy to take to the Nottingham UnCon as my original copy has been all around the world - that copy is destined for the lovely Pookledo. You can read all the JE's here.

This one could be YOURS!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Hello, thank you for being curious enough to visit Bookcrossing!

Even if this isn't your kind of book and you don't intend to read it I'd appreciate it if you would make a journal entry of some sort. Maybe you could say where you found it (they don't always stay where they were originally left!) or what you think of the idea of travelling books.

Then, leave it for someone else to find. And don't forget, if you make release notes (to say where you've left it, and when) next time it's journalled you'll hear from it too! If you decide to join please say that house-elfdobby sent you - many thanks and happy Bookcrossing!

Taking this one along to the 2011 Nottingham UnCon to find it a lovely new home!
